Join organisers, Chris Frauenberger, Judith Good and Narcís Parés, in the heart of Silicon Valley, San Jose, California, at the Conference for Human-Computer Interaction (CHI 2016), May 7-12, for a workshop designed to expand the focus of technologies for individuals with ASD. Autism & Technology: Beyond Assistance & Interventions – technologies designed for people with autism are often focused on their particular functional limitations. This ignores a rich design space in which technologies could play more meaningful and multi-faceted roles in the complex life-worlds of people with autism. This one-day workshop at CHI 2016 (Saturday, May 7th) will explore how to go beyond technologies that narrowly focus on concepts of assistance or intervention.
The following will be discussed throughout the course of the workshop:
